Decade-long time-lapse of the sun

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory has been taking a picture of the sun every 0.75 seconds for a decade. Above is a time-lapse of the resulting 20 million gigabytes of data: This 10-year time lapse showcases photos taken at a wavelength of 17.1 nanometers, which is an extreme ultraviolet wavelength that shows the Sun’s outermost atmospheric layer — the corona. Compiling one photo every hour, the movie condenses a decade of...

Man takes picture of himself every day for 20 years

In 2007, Noah Kalina posted a time-lapse video showing a picture of himself every day for six years. Pop culture swallowed it up. There was even a Simpsons parody with Homer. After another six years, it was a video for twelve years’ worth of photos. Kalina has kept his everyday project going, and the above is the new time-lapse for two decades. This brings back graduate school memories for me...

Time-lapse of all the wind in 2018

Using the same National Weather Service data that powers his live-ish wind map of Earth, Cameron Beccario put together a time-lapse for all of 2018. Watch it on full-screen in its 4k glory. Tags: time-lapse, wind

Time-lapse shows night sky at varying levels of light pollution

One of my favorite childhood memories is the time I went camping and saw the Big Dipper for the first time. There weren’t any lights in the mountains to diffuse the view of the sky. Sriram Murali uses time-lapse to demonstrate. Queue the ethereal music: [via kottke] Tags: light, pollution, time-lapse

Time-lapse of community-edited pixels

For April Fool’s Day, Reddit ran a subreddit, r/place, that let users edit pixels in a 1,000 by 1,000 blank space for 72 hours. Users could only edit one pixel every ten minutes, which forced patience and community effort. This is the time-lapse of the effort. Kind of great. It’s fun to watch the edits of thousands converge. It’s a complete hodgepodge but it all fit together in the relatively...

Detailed time-lapse of everywhere on Earth

A few years back, Google released a time-lapse feature in Google Earth that let you see change through satellite imagery. They updated the feature last week. It’s more detailed and higher resolution than the first version, based on the pixels from about five million images. We took the best of all those pixels to create 33 images of the entire planet, one for each year. We then encoded these new...

One-year time-lapse of Earth

x Time-lapse from space by NASA: On July 20, 2015, NASA released to the world the first image of the sunlit side of Earth captured by the space agency’s EPIC camera on NOAA’s DSCOVR satellite. The camera has now recorded a full year of life on Earth from its orbit at Lagrange point 1, approximately 1 million miles from Earth, where it is balanced between the gravity of our home...

Ant time-lapse shows movement patterns

Ant activity can seem mysterious at times. The pack seems to start out slow as a few head out in your house in search for food. Before you know it, the entire colony is en route to a few crumbs that your toddler dropped on the floor a few hours ago. Such a pain — but at the same time kind of impressive. Simon Garnier, an assistant professor at the...
